This is a very plain bag because I wanted to show off this magnificent color. It is called Grape and the yarn is Elle Toy Story. A very thin, and inexpensive yarn. I used double strands for this bag in single stitch to make it firm. The little charms are from one of my Japanese Craft Books and really easy to make, stuffed with cotton wool.
Not easy to see the nice lining fabric, but it is a soft green with little purple flowers on. I have had this fabric for years.
Soft pink polka dot fabric for the lining and I love the end result!
I found this cool "old-fashioned" sewing tin at Chamdor over the weekend. It now holds all my "eye candy". That is little fabric flowers, cute buttons and other sweet little embellishment ideas for my bags.
This bag is a quick project I completed in one afternoon over the weekend. The lining still needs to be sewn.
My completed Gardening at Night bag from Debbie Stoller of Stitch Nation fame. Mine is of course very different from the pattern, but I am beginning to like it a lot. The hexagons were fun to make. I lined this bag with plain black cotton fabric and pockets inside.
I have not started a new crocheted bag yet. I plan to sew my winter coat this weekend and maybe work some more on my crocheted orange coat as well. Who knows what else I might feel like making this weekend? I prefer to "go with the flow"...Hope you all have a great weekend!
